I was just telling anghara, pursuant to a conversation regarding The Prestige and her WiP, that an AI-avatar of Tesla came very close to being a character in Hammered, back in the day.  He never made it into a complete draft, but I did write rough versions of several flashback scenes between him and Elspeth, equivalent to the conversations between her and Feynman that are still in the book.

He was *very* satisfying to write. Especially as I was writing a much later and madder version of Tesla than appears in the movie.

Anyway, while I was icon-making today, as I do sometimes when I need a rest from words, I found this image of Nikola Tesla and Samuel Clemens playing with toys in the lab. Truly, the intarwebs are full of cool.
